Even though I never stepped foot into the actual dealership, everyone who was involved in helping me find a vehicle at Stanley went above and beyond. I had 3 different people at 3 different locations working hard to find me and my family the right vehicle. Once they found it, they even drove the vehicle 2 hours to deliver it to me!!! I hope to meet everyone involved one day to thank them in person. Until then...thank you Chris, Kelly, Richard and Marty.

I took my one year old Mini Cooper S for yearly service and inspection. The staff was efficient, friendly and communicative. The service was performed while I was at work and I picked it up afterwards with no issues. I am very satisfied with the service and professionalism at Mini of Pgh.

Easy to deal and work with. Found the vehicle on Autotrader.com. Called and Clevekand assisted me with the information and was able to hold the vehicle for me. Loy did a great job on the financing. All around, fantastic service. Was worth the 200 mile drive.

You guys have a nice looking clean dealership and bubba overstreet doesn't play the typical salesman game when dealing. All the way around it was easy and fair

spoke to sales over the phone and discussed price, trade in, and financing. It didn't take hours sitting in the dealership and easier for my schedule.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
